* Tuition waiver applies to senior citizens auditing credit-based classes only. Seniors are still responsible for paying all course-associated fees and tools/equipment.
Take a course for credit
If there is space available in a course on the 2nd day of the semester, seniors can register and pay only $20 tuition per credit in administration fees. Seniors do pay student fees, minus the Student Life and all course-associated fees, as well as textbooks and tools/equipment. Senior registrations are taken starting the second day of each semester if space is available. See current fees here.
Audit a course
If a senior wants to “audit” a course – which means attending but not taking tests, being graded or earning college credit – there is no administration fee. Auditing students will be charged for parking, health, and course fees. See current fees here.
Students auditing a class must still attend and participate as required by the instructor. If you want to audit, fill out the Alternative Grading Form and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. An email from the instructor can be used to signify their approval.
Senior Citizens are also responsible for any additional materials or textbooks for courses.
